Product Description

Michael Keaton and Geena Davis are a winning ticket (Joel Siegel, Good Morning America ) in this captivating romantic comedy which proves conclusively that opposites do attract and then some. 'smart, sexy and side-splittingly funny (Mike McKay, WBTV-CBS), Speechless is the word for great entertainment. It was a match made in heaven... almost. Two witty, intelligent insomniacs, Kevin (Keaton) and Julia (Davis), meet over the last box of sleeping pills at an all-night convenience store and are immediately attracted. They share an evening of passion and romance and discover that they have a lot in common... maybe too much. When they learn that they're both speech writers but for opposing political campaigns the sweethearts quickly move from speechless to ruthless and drop the pillow talk for serious verbal jabbing. But the more they stab each other in the back and insult each other directly, the more they realize that true love doesn't always follow along party lines.

Amazon.com

Picture James Carville and Mary Matalin dropped into a screwball comedy. Michael Keaton and Geena Davis are political speechwriters with bad cases of insomnia who meet cute, fall in love, and then discover that they are working for opposing candidates. The subsequent short-lived war of dirty tricks and one-upmanship is one of those contrivances that is soon (and thankfully) discarded in light of their instant rapport and mutual respect. In a world where candidates are for sale and campaigns are fought like poker games, these idealists are made for each other--they just don't know it yet. Director Ron Underwood (City Slickers) has a light touch with comedy and a nice feel for romantic fun, but it's the charm of Keaton and Davis that puts the bounce in an otherwise limp political satire. --Sean Axmaker

Speechless is delightful! The chemistry between Davis and Keaton is the best I have seen in a long time. In my opinion, this is Davis at her best! Plus, the story is very interesting and has those great "ups and downs". I also give high marks for Christopher Reeve and it is sad to see that this was one of his last pre-accident movies. As with most romantic comedies these days, the characters have to go to bed, but thankfully, it is kept off screen. Rated PG-13 for some language and implied sex.

browsing for a michael keaton movie..? if you love michael like i do, be sure not to pass this one up, its the old fashion, boy meets girl, boy chases girl, but you'll have to watch the movie to find out how it ends, this is a romantic comedy that we ladies like seeing keaton in, scenes are suggestive without todays over the top sex scenes, there are moments in the film that take you back to memories of your dating years, for example one scene where michael and geena discreetly reach to hold each others hand, they just wanted to touch each other, for all those ladies who think like i do, that michael is one sexy dude, get this movie, you will enjoy it, i have lost count of how many times i have watched it, add all this to the fact that in my opinion michael is one of the best, most expressive actors of this era who is enjoyable to watch, you cant go wrong purchasing this movie.

An oddity of sorts because you have the two actors who played Batman and Superman in one movie (Micheal Keaton and Christopher Reeve respectively). With that aside, SPEECHLESS delivers on the grounds of a decent romantic/screwball comedy. Keaton and Geena Davis play speechwriters for rival candidates in a New Mexico senatorial campaign who meet and fall in love under unusual circumstances. They must keep their love alive when the campaign becomes intense and they must keep their loyalty to their respective candidates. Typical light characters played by Keaton and Davis and Christopher Reeve thrown into the mix as an old boyfriend of Davis trying to revive the old relationship. Overall, solid entertainment that's unoffensive with snappy dialogue.

This movie has the wonderful touch of both romance and comedie that match as much as the main stars do.Michael Keaton and Geena Davis have the right chemistry and invite us to live their story.At a moment you may even be moved and cry as at the end they both leave their current jobs for their love no matter if at first their were working opposite.And of course they live happily ever after.

Political infighting forever after: Back stabbing, dirty tricks, tricky dirt
and just plain misunderstanding.
The movie is a somewhat unlikely campaign speech writer's meeting made in heaven that degenerates into he thought she said that he said.
I kind of liked it because I like both the leads Michael Keaton and Geena Davis, but I wouldn't really call this their finest hour.

Speechless is a romantic comedy that pairs Michael Keaton and Geena Davis as speechwriters for opposing campaigns. No doubt it was at least partially based on or inspired by Mary Matalin and James Carville. One difference though--in Speechless she's the Democrat and he's the Republican. Though the politics are only a pretext for a little rom com thrust and parry, one couldn't ask for better sparring partners than Geena and Keaton.

--------------------------------------
stage direction: [While riding in back of pickup truck to get gasoline]
Julia: Is that cologne?
Kevin: Black Flag. You know, it's manly, and as you can see, not a roach in sight...
--------------------------------------

In this version of reality both parties are corrupt (wait a minute--are you sure it's fiction?). The wedge issue of immigration is one difference though, with the Democrat opposing the construction of a ditch between the US and Mexico, while the Republican spins it by dubbing it "The Friendship Ditch." Score one for Keaton. The only one who really believes in the speeches is Geena Davis' character. She is doing it because she wants to make the world a better place. Keaton is a former sit com writer and he is in it strictly for the money--and the laughs.

Christopher Reeve played Keaton's rival, a Network Television News Journalist who was Geena's former boyfriend, and now her fiancé. This movie was just a year before Reeve would have his tragic riding accident that would leave him paralyzed. There is one strange bit that became a running gag about her former boyfriend having a tattoo on his lip. If we ever find out what the tatto says, then I must have blinked.

Format: DVD
This is a charming romantic comedy which revolves around the friendship and eventual romance that develops between two rival speech writers who are working for opposing candidates vying for the Senate seat in New Mexico. Most of the comedy arises from trying to resolve the inevitable tension and conflicts which arise from this complicated association, where doing a good job means being critical of the rival's candidate and yet not making it a personal matter that could destroys or poison their true feelings for each other. Their respective bosses are running for the vacant Senate seat and each team is doing their utmost to persuade the voters *their* candidate will work harder on issues most important to them. The teams are doing their best to outsmart the opposition in winning votes and use creative techniques which at times are totallly hilarious.

Michael Keaton plays Kevin Vallick, a former Hollywood sitcom writer, turned speech writer for the Republican candidate Garvin. Julia Mann played by Geena Davis is the speech writer for Wannamaker the Democratic candidate. They unexpectedly meet at midnight at the hotel's gift shop trying to buy the same box of Nytol, a non-narcotic sleeping agent for their common malady, insomnia. The next day, they meet again and develop a budding friendship which leads to a drive across the border to Mexico on the spur of the moment. At this point they do not yet know each others true roles, Kevin acknowledges his past job as sitcom writer and when he reads Julia's name tag on her jacket, which identifies her as a newspaper reporter, neither corrects the misconception about their current positions. They have a terrific time in Mexico and both are acutely aware that it has become a budding romance, the implications of which are on the minds of each.
